Notes & Reviews:

William Walton (1902-1983), although universally acknowledged as one of England's finest 20th century composers, is controversial in that unlike most other musicians he started out as a radical and gradually became more conservative. This anomaly appears in his Symphony No. 1, the last movement of which was composed long after the first and does not quite make a perfect fit. Nevertheless, the music of each movement is so good that the work is always singled out as one of the finest symphonies by a modern composer. It secured Walton's international fame. Rounding out this album are two shorter Walton orchestral works, the gay 'Scapino' overture and the less familiar 'Siesta' for small orchestra.
